The Secret Hiding Places Of Acne
Acne-prone skin has four to five times more skin cells than other skin types. That means you have to be diligent with your skincare, but you also have to be watchful with hair and make-up products, too.
Any hair styling product that has oil, silicones and plasticizers will clog your pores if they get on your skin. So try to steer clear of these products.
Lifestyle habits can be a definite hiding place for acne. Think about it. When was the last time you cleaned those make-up brushes, huh? These tools are crawling with bacteria and dead skin cells, and they are just waiting to create a zit factory on your face!
Trapping oils and dirt in the pores of your skin cause acne, that much is clear. However, what may not be as clear is that using your cell phone for extended periods of time can trap these oils and dirt particles into your pores, causing breakouts. Mitchell Kline, MD, a professor at New York-Presbyterian Medical Center’s Weill Cornell Medical College weighs in: “Some people hold cell phones to their faces and talk for a long period of time, perspiring onto the phone and blocking the pores.” “Holding your phone against your cheek traps oil in the pores, which can lead to those deep-forming acne cysts,” agrees Neil Sadick, MD, a renowned dermatologist and researcher.*
And smoking? Get this. Researchers at the Gallicano Dermatological Institute in Rome identified non-inflammatory acne to be common among frequent smokers. They also found that teenaged acne smokers were four to five times more likely than non-smokers to have adult acne.
To beat acne you must be informed about the disease and how to conquer it. I encourage you to get PCA SKIN Corrective Chemical Peels. Peels are an excellent way to pare down those extra skin cells, reduce oil and give you smoother, younger skin. What a great combination!
